“Juicy Steaks on the Waterfront”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

We have visited this restaurant many times and not once I was not satisfied. Just do NOT order their specials - the steaks are then not so juicy. It is a small intimate restaurant with scenes over the waterfront. It also has smokers tables outside on the deck. Their prices are not cheap but they do not charge corkage if you should bring your own wine. Book early to be not dissapointed

“Outstanding foor and Excellent Service”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

This is a must-visit. Romantic setting with dimmed lights and 'candle-lights' on table, whether for a couple or a group. We were a party of 5, who were served by a knowledgeable and friendly waiter, (don't remember his name now) who gave us dinner suggestions. We all went for the special, (if I can remember correctly, as this was in April 2012) was a steak, with 2 sides. The mushrooms was to die for, totally loved the pumpkin and broccoli's to. Each plate came with potato wedges. We ended off the evening with Dom Pedros. What an awesome evening it was, before I flew back to California. I'll definitely visit this restaurant when I visit again next year.
